Fruit Cup with Lime Yogurt Sauce

Even though the snow is piling up on the ground right now, I'm thinking about my summer body. I've been kicking my fitness routine into overdrive, hoping to shed these last few pounds before I have to break out the shorts and swimsuits in a few short months. My fitness instructor made a comment to the class this week that really made sense. "You can come to class and bust your butts all week long, but that's only half the battle. If you aren't seeing an improvement after all that moving, maybe you need to reevaluate your meal plan." She hit my problematic nail right on the head. To say I have a sweet tooth is an understatement. I always have the urge to eat something sweet after dinner, which pretty much kills all the work I just put in, since I usually want a cookie or chocolates. I am slowly making better after dinner snack choices though, reaching for Greek yogurt or a fruit ice pop, but I think it's also a good idea to have ready-made fruit cups on hand for more variety. This Fruit Cup with Lime Yogurt Sauce is a great option, combining delicious fruit and yogurt into a sweet-tooth approved dessert.

Fruit Cup with Lime Yogurt Sauce

This recipe calls for strawberries and cantaloupe, but you could mix in any number of fruits to customize it to your own taste. I'll throw in a few blueberries and blackberries into the mix the next time I make this. Grate some lime zest over the top for more pop of color and pretty presentation. 

Ingredients
Lime Sauce:
2 cups plain yogurt
1/4 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 tablespoon grated lime zest
2 tablespoons lime juice
Fruit:
1 cantaloupe, seeded and cut into 1-inch chunks
1 pint strawberries, halved
2 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/4 cup fresh lime juice

  1. Looks nom nom! Lime is almost impossible to find here or it is extremely expensive like five times the lemon price, and even lemons have been expensive in recent years, like three times the price of bananas or oranges. I've no idea why and it irritates me since I drink my morning tea with half a lemon squeezed into it :)

    1. That's terrible! Limes are really abundant and inexpensive here. I can get 5 for $1. Lemons are a bit pricier, though at almost $1 each for the bigger sized ones. You can get a small bag of them for about $3 for the smaller sized lemons, but they don't give off a lot of juice and don't look very pretty (only a gripe because of food photography).

    2. Lemons are currently about $2 for a kilo here, but they were up to $5 whole last year. And very ugly, small, rotten ones too... Oranges and bananas are about $1,5 for a kilo right now. I do tend to buy the cheaper ones in little sacks, because I just squeeze them anyway, but it is very low quality. But you should see our potatoes, like stones and our rotten apples with warms :) because, since we're world's greatest apple producers, they export all the good ones and leave us with the trash :)

  2. Fruit and yogurt is one of my most favorite combos. I like the way this one you made looks too. It's purty. :)
